Minnesota parents often worry about their children's health and safety. Everyday life issues can place kids at risk for injury, such as falling while playing outdoors. There are often more serious, hidden risks present in children's lives as well. The Food and Drug Administration recently reported such a risk regarding popular cosmetic products that many teenagers and parents purchase from Claire's and Justice stores. The FDA says people who use certain products from these stores are at risk for asbestos exposure.
Can you recall when you first began to notice that something wasn't right and you just didn't feel well? Perhaps, at first, you thought you were overly tired from work or maybe had contracted a minor illness. Were you prompted to schedule an appointment with a Minnesota medical doctor when you realized your symptoms were not subsiding? Asbestosis often presents like that -- slowly developing symptoms that linger and feel worse over time.
For decades, parents used baby powder while diapering their children. Perhaps your parents used Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder to keep you dry and comfortable as a baby.
